Abstract:

Tuberculosis (TB) is a leading infectious killer globally. In the US, over 50% of all TB cases are in foreign born patients, reaching 80% in some locations. The National Tuberculosis Curriculum Consortium (NTCC) was established in 2003 through the NIH National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (N01-HR-36157). In line with the National Academy of Science Institute of Medicine report for reforming healthcare, the NTCC consists of a national faculty representing Clinical Laboratory Science, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health, Respiratory Therapy, and Physician Assistants. Participants include TB experts, program directors, and professional educators from 20 universities. The mission of the NTCC is to evaluate current teaching practices for TB, and to create, design, implement, and evaluate new teaching tools for TB. The NTCC has developed knowledge-based competencies for TB, and conducted surveys including 364 students at three US schools of pharmacy to establish a baseline. This survey showed a mean score for basic TB knowledge of 57% (28 to 87% based on the complexity of the questions). 27% of students considered the emphasis on TB education in their curriculum inadequate, and 41% of students did not believe that they were adequately prepared to care for TB patients. In response, the NTCC is developing TB teaching tools, including test questions, games, computer-based learning programs, and case studies. A sampling of all completed or preliminary work products will be presented. The NTCC goal is to provide Schools of Pharmacy with access to these teaching tools for use at their institutions.
